Man shoots himself inside Nashville's VA hospital

There was no word from the hospital other than word of mouth from staff, it was about 15 minutes until the Code Blue alarm went off.

There is no substitute

for the veteran claimant who is involved and informed. Once you've learned how the system really works, filing correctly...getting it right the first time...isn't that hard to do. Educate yourself by reading what the experts have to say.

How to Fight VA Debt

​If there's one thing military members know, it's that when the Defense Department gives you too much money, it will come back for it eventually.The VA is similar, but the system is worse.
